The Purple Iris Wedding Martinsburg West Virginia

September 13, 2020

Filed in: Wedding

DC classic elegance meets Virginia mountain charm. When Covid-19 forced Susie & Haddon to shift their plans multiple times, I couldn’t imagine a better place for having their closest friends and family witness their vows to each other. It was a serene location in the Shenandoah mountains, and such a perfect intimate choice for their scaled down micro-wedding. With a merge of American and Korean culture & language, the ceremony was officiated by two people extremely influential in the couple’s life: the groom’s father, Chris Hodge, and one of their pastors at the DC church they both attend, Mike Park.

Haddon’s smile throughout the day was one of complete admiration and joy towards his bride. And Susie just radiates joy ALL the time anyways, so it was a doubly joyful day. From the separate guest suites to get ready in, first look in the front yard, wedding in the side garden, cocktail hour in the mansion parlor, to the reception in the back tent overlooking the sunset, there were definitely multiple reasons to smile about.

Congratulations Susie & Haddon! I am so excited to see how God will continue to work in your relationship and the impact you’ll have together. Wishing you both the best as newlyweds!
